Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Chiara's Italian lessons! Her material is always interesting and practical, which makes learning grammar much more fun. During our conversations, she always listens patiently and only makes corrections when it is necessary. At the end of every lesson, she sends all the material that we have covered in that class. Even though our lessons are online, I can feel her energy, enthusiasm and passion through the screen. Above all, she is kind and lovely teacher and I'll definitely keep on taking lessons with her.

Pros
  • engaging material
  • enthusiastic and patient teacher

The Language Cottage

Consiglio vivamente le lezioni con la Maestra Chiara.
Mia figlia di 7 anni frequenta assiduamente da più di un anno ed ogni volta è entusiasta di partecipare.
Chiara, con la sua competenza, riesce a preparare delle lezioni che divertono i bambini ed al contempo fa loro apprendere la lingua.
Mia figlia frequenta il corso on line con altre 3-4 bambine della sua età; non è facile mantenere viva la loro attenzione per un’ora ma la lezione passa velocemente, imparando parole nuove e frasi di senso compiuto attraverso un gioco, con una canzone o con una storiella di volta in volta diversa.

Pros
  • Engaging
  • Effective
  • Fun

The language cottage, koh sa mui, Thailand

I have been attached with this language school doing online class since 2020, I am still doing the online Italian classes. Chiara is my teacher, she is Italian and she does the lesson so well that you will not want to quit or absent for her lesson. All these 3 years I never absent unless if it is really necessary.
Prof. Chiara knows very well how to make you understand those complicated grammar lessons and she does it over and over again until it is definitely understood.
Trust me, I have tried one or two more language teachers online and in person but I still preferred Chiara to them. Now I can read and understand grammar well.
As a teacher Prof. Chiara is very dedicated and very very helpful. No matter how many times, she is always there to help you with your lessons.
With doing online classes I have come this far with the Italian language and I always imagine how it will be to attend the class in person with Chiara. 🎉 Bravo to the language school. They will go very far in the future 👍👍👍

Very useful and fun lessons

I’m studying Thai language with teacher Jom.
This course is very useful, because we learn not only grammar, but many basic phrases which can be used in daily life.
There are 7 people in my group, atmosphere is very friendly and relaxing, we have a lot of fun. Teacher Jom is very energetic and helpful, he’ll make you speak Thai from the first lesson. Class schedule is quite convenient, it’s 2 hours twice a week.
I’m glad that I’ve chosen Mind your language school. After just two months I already can have basic conversation in Thai language.

Great school!

Translated by Go Overseas:
I am very glad that I found this school of languages. I have been studying Thai for about 2 months. I experience only positive emotions! I didn't think learning a language could be so much fun. I work out 2 times a week for 2 hours. I started speaking some basic phrases in informal communication already in the second or third lesson. Classes are held in an easy format and of course with materials that are issued before the start of the course. After 3 weeks, I remember how I spoke in the street in Thai absolutely uncontrollably and easily. It was a shock for me. My teacher Jom is just great! Recommend 100%

Original review:
Я очень рад тому, что нашел эту школу языков. Изучаю тайский язык около 2-х месяцев. Испытываю только положительные эмоции! Не думал, что изучения языка может быть таким веселым занятием. Я занимаюсь 2 раза в неделю по 2 часа. Какие то базовые фразы я начал говорить в неформальном общении уже на второй или третий урок. Занятия проходят в легком формате и конечно же с материалами которые выдаются перед началом курса. Через недели 3 помню как я заговорил на улице на тайском языке абсолютно неконтролируемо и легко. Это был шок для меня. Мой преподаватель Jom просто великолепен! Рекомендую 100%

Pros
  • Программа
  • Непринужденный формат
  • Классный преподаватель
Cons
  • Много занятий в удаленном формате (covid 19 видимо еще), а можно было бы чаще встречаться

Study Thai on line

I am currently studying Thai with Mr Jom Nawa. Before the Coronavirus we met at school for the lessons. Now we study online. I am sitting at my home and so do all the others. We are 4 to 5 people in class now and it works very well. I have been trying to learn Thai for a number of years and for a number of different teachers but khun Jom is outstandingly the best.

Super!

Translated by Go Overseas:
Thai study with Jom via Skype, before meeting him I tried for a couple of years to study alone or by being helped by Thai friends but with Jom in four months I learned more than in the previous two years of study.

The lessons are interesting, engaging and never boring. I am learning Thai quickly and almost without realizing it. Jom uses many methods to help memory remember new words and grammatical rules, he also explains the various aspects of Thai culture in relation to the language and this is very useful for understanding how to adapt my way of speaking to the context in which I find myself.

Original Version:
Studio Thailandese con Jom via Skype, prima di incontrarlo ho cercato per un paio d'anni di studiare da solo o facendomi aiutare da amici thai ma con Jom in quattro mesi ho imparato più che nei precedenti due anni di studio.

Le lezioni sono interessanti, coinvolgenti e mai noiose. Sto imparando in thai in modo veloce e quasi senza accorgermene. Jom utilizza molti metodi per aiutare la memoria a ricordare nuove parole e regole grammaticali, inoltre mi spiega i vari aspetti della cultura thai in relazione alla lingua e questo è molto utile per capire come adattare il mio modo di parlare al contesto in cui mi trovo.

Highly Recommended

I’ve been studying Thai at M.Y.L. for 8 months. It’s been so enjoyable I’ve signed up for another 8 months. In addition to studying conversation I’ve been studying reading and writing. I thoroughly recommend M.Y.L.

In order to learn Thai a transliteration system is necessary at the beginning. The one used at M.Y.L. is very natural for English speakers to read. I’ve tried a few of these systems, some of which require studying before studying Thai itself. The one used at M.Y.L. is the best I’ve seen.

There are lots of courses on offer, from conversation only to advanced reading and writing. The teachers are certified, speak excellent English and keep a good balance between education and fun. Classes have about 6 students, usually of different nationalities.

Of course, to study Thai you’ll need an Education Visa, which the school can arrange. M.Y.L. has a good relationship with Samui Immigration and will only issue genuine visas.

If you have no intention of learning Thai but want an extended holiday in Samui don’t go to the school and expect them to apply for a fraudulent visa. They won’t! You’re wasting their time, your own time and making it more difficult for genuine students.

However, if you’re a genuine student you’ll learn Thai, meet new people and have a lot of fun in the process. I can thoroughly recommend M.Y.L. school.
